The use of chemicals to whiten or brighten. Any substance used for bleaching.
Bleach is produced by reacting chlorine into a dilute sodium hydroxide solution to give sodium hypochlorite. This solution is also known as "Eau de Labarraque" and "Eau de Javel". Bleach is used for disinfection, water purification, sanitary cleaners and for whitening paper, soap, straw and cotton.
A dilute solution of sodium hypochlorite or calcium hypochlorite which kills bacteria and destroys colored organic materials by oxidizing them.
An oxidizing agent formulated to break down colored matter. Includes the widely used hypochlorites, as well as perborates and other special purpose materials.

A chlorine solution used to whiten pulp in paper making.
chemical used to whiten paper pulp, often a chlorine solution.
Ordinary laundry bleach is used in a 1 part bleach to 10 parts water solution as a garden fungicide. Use this solution to clean all your equipment between harvests to rid of any lingering contamination.
Do not use chlorine bleach to clean out mops that are to be used for maintaining or applying floor sealer, finishes or restorers. It is an oxidizer and can severely deteriorate the floor finish. Bleach is not compatible with floor finish and can cause the finish to coagulate.
A chlorine solution often used in paper making to whiten.
A product that helps whiten, brighten and remove stains. Bleaches convert soils into colourless, soluble particles that can be removed by detergents and carried away in the wash water. Liquid chlorine bleach (usually in a sodium hypochlorite solution) can also disinfect and deodorize fabrics. Oxygen (colour-safe) bleach is gentler and works safely on almost all washable fabrics.
Chemical, usually chlorine, used to whiten pulp.
Liquid chlorine (Sodium Hypochlorite) used to sanitize water. Pool "bleach" has 12% available chlorine, while laundry "bleach" has only 5-6% available chlorine.
A fluid, powder or other whitening (bleaching) or cleaning agent, usually with free chlorine ions. Commercial bleach contains calcium hypochlorite or sodium hypochlorite, and is a common disinfectant used for cleaning working surfaces, tools and plant materials in plant tissue culture and grafting.
A chlorine solution used to whiten pulp in papermaking.
A chemical which whitens yarn or fabrics. Sodium chlorite (chlorine), hydrogen peroxide or reducing agents such as sulphur dioxide or sodium bisulphite are the most common bleaches. Bleaching is used to remove natural and other types of impurities and blemishes from fabrics prior to dyeing and finishing. The removal of color from dyed or printed textiles is usually called stripping.
A product that cleans, whitens, removes stains and brightens fabrics.
This term usually refers to liquid chlorine (sodium hypochlorite, NaOCl, 10 to 12% chlorine by weight). It is the same chemical used in laundry bleach but pool chlorine is 12% available chlorine while laundry bleach is about 5-6% available chlorine. A gallon of liquid chlorine contains about 1 pound of pure chlorine or is equivalent to 1 pound of gas chlorine.

This term usually refers to liquid chlorine. It is the same chemical used in the home, but pool chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) has 12% - 15% available chlorine while laundry bleach only has about 5% available chlorine.
To bleach something is to remove or lighten its color; a "bleach" is a chemical that can produce these effects, often via oxidation. Common chemical bleaches include a solution of sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), or "chlorine bleach," and "oxygen bleach," which contains hydrogen peroxide or a peroxide-releasing compound such as sodium perborate or sodium percarbonate. "Bleaching powder" is calcium hypochlorite.
